Dezeen teamed up with Iceland’s largest design fair DesignMarch to livestream a programme of talks by creative leaders exploring the role of design and architecture in effecting change and shaping alternative futures.
To kickstart the festival, a programme of talks took place throughout the day, which was livestreamed from the Henning Larsen Architects-designed Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Called DesignTalks, the event was split into three themed sessions moderated by Dezeen’s founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
The third and final session continued the discussion of the digital realm and expanded on how designers are expanding realities into the digital realm, as well as exploring how speculation on the future can be used as a form of creative and critical reflection.
The talks featured contributions from Arnhildur Pálmadóttir, founder of architecture practice SAP, and speculative architect and filmmaker Liam Young.
